WoW (Words of wisdom the world is waiting for ;-)
Be yourself and the right people will love you. And if not then You are unique and outstanding.

Had a power nap, now back to real life. Or is life only a dream and dreams are the real world?

There is always light in the fridge. That has to mean something. Maybe it says: Eat if you want to.

Musicvideo - band Facelift - Kiss You Awake

Had a video shot in Chelsea / Vienna / Austria, a location with stage and bands playing every day, on October 4, 2012. Facelift, a band from Graz / Austria, had a gig there.
With this video material I made a musicvideo to the song "Kiss You Awake".

But only showing a band playing on stage is not really exciting. So I added gags.
  • When the song stops for a break the video also stops and the camera moves on the freezed picture.
  • And in verse three there is a wah effect on guitar and I made the guitar glow and move away from the guitar player.

And as usual I did not charge the band. I do it for interest. So I can select bands I like. Being free to select a band, who makes interesting music, is one keyfactor for a good result. How could I produce a good video if I don't like the sound?
